The Finest Red Deer Stock In North AmericaHuge Trophies

 Our goal at Shakaree is to consistently produce the largest antlered Red Stags available to the farming and hunting industry. We have been achieving this goal with the importation of both semen and embryos from the world’s elite Red Deer breeders, and very selective breeding on our farm.

Our quest to produce huge antlers truly began in the fall of 1994 when we introduced pure Yugoslavian, German, and English (Furzeland, Woburn, and Warnhorn) bloodlines into our herd. For the next several years, we AI’d over 200 hinds to get the combination of genetics we wanted on the ground at our farm. The results of our breeding programs are tremendous and our entire herd shows their strength.

A great example of our strong breeding program at Shakaree is the SCI scores that the stags are consistently producing. This year we had a stag scoring over 420 at one year of age.

To achieve these scores, we have been keeping many of our blood lines pure, but we have also mixed and matched bloodlines to increase many of the desired antler traits. To achieve these traits, we have not overlooked the important role the hinds are playing in producing these elite trophy animals. With a strong venison market and our own hunting business, we have a large outlet for the hinds that we do not believe are strong enough for our breeding herd. This strict culling program has helped us develop a very strong nucleus of hinds and stags that we consider world class.
